Health Children Learn Better ... School Nurses Make It Happen Welcome to Nursing Services

      The mission of the Nursing Services Department is to optimize student and staff health while supporting a quality education for every student every day.

      Nursing services in the Cloverleaf Local Schools are  provided by board-hired Registered Nurses (RN).  

The elementary school has a full-time RN for the building. The middle school and high school share a second full-time RN. Please contact the school nurse if your child has a medical condition, needs daily medication or has a chronic health condition, especially if that condition may affect their school day. Students with medical conditions usually attend school more consistently when parents and school nurses work together. No medication (including OTC and herbal) can be given at school without an order from your health care provider.
